80 People Came Into Contact With Texas Ebola Patient

Well, this doesn't sound good.

About 80 people came into contact with U.S. Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan or one of his family members before he was hospitalized, Dallas County health officials said Thursday.

However, not all of them were necessarily in close physical contact with the Liberian national, Dallas County's Health and Human Services director Zachary Thompson said. That number is in addition to the 12 to 18 people who had direct contact with Duncan, including some school-age children, Texas Gov. Rick Perry said Wednesday

I think the important thing here is to remind everyone to stay calm. Don't panic. Don't run to the store right now and buy supplies. Wait until later, after I've had my chance to buy up all the supplies. Don't worry, I will sell some to you at a 2,000% mark up.
